Albeit being glad does not necessarily help you, I am indeed glad there is at least one serious sounding group working toward something like nervegear, of which you said is not your goal, but it is similar enough.

There is more than one group working towards this goal. Publicly, I cite 17Robot's group (which accepted people from this forum, no longer does, yet still exists and does work, IIRC). Privately, I cite DARPA and numerous colleges (who may not be working towards a 'NerveGear' but are making great strides in the BCI VR field).
We are working on way smaller things for now, yet if we do well, we will tackle bigger projects.
Also, I dislike the term "NerveGear" as it is a fictional object. I think we (the community) need to think of a new term. "BCI VR" has been used yet doesn't describe just the end goal. "Full Dive" is also fictional... I've heard "True VR" and use that myself.

I believe DARPA is trying to make somehting very similair to a True VR.
Here's a proposal form that DARPA made in January last year:
"DARPA seeks proposals to design, build, demonstrate, and validate a neural interface platform capable of recording from more than 1,000,000 neurons and stimulating more than 100,000 neurons in proposer-defined regions of the human auditory, visual and somatosensory cortex. The complete system must demonstrate high-precision detection, transduction, and encoding of neural activity."
Note the: "....human auditory, visual and somatosensory cortex."
